Walker was in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Los Angeles, for a charity event for
 his organization Reach Out Worldwide.
“It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in
 a tragic car accident,” read a message posted on his Facebook page. “He was a passenger
 in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are
 stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news.”

One witness said he tried to put the fire out and recognized Walker’s body inside,
 according to the Santa Clarita Valley Signal.
Another spectator at the crash site said Walker had been taking a “joyride” with a close friend.

“Him and his buddy, his brother in arms at heart just decided to joyride, take a spin.
 Something we all do. We’re all car enthusiasts,” said Antonio Holmes, who said he
 was a friend of Walker’s.

"We all ran around and jumped in cars and grabbed fire extinguishers and immediately
 went to the vehicle," Holmes said. "It was engulfed in flames. There was nothing. They
were trapped. Employees, friends of the shop. We tried. We tried. We went through fire
extinguishers.”
The crash occurred on Rye Canyon Loop, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s
 Department.
